On The Go

Writing 201 Assignment
Prompt: Landscape
Form: Found Poetry
Device: Enumeratio


I know I know, Writing 201 Poetry course has almost ended (feeling sad), but I’m gonna stretch it over the weekend since I have to complete two more assignments. It has been a great learning experience, hope it has been the same for you all. đŸ™‚

This assignment was rather a tricky one. As how to combine all the three given elements in one poem, was a little confusing, So I had to let go one of the elements (found poetry). This is the first time I have eliminated any of the three given elements. But not to worry, I will definitely experiment with Found Poetry some other time. As for the device enumeratio, I hope I haven’t used it too much! đŸ˜€

On The Go

Here we go to the country lake
In the car, with my mom, my dad, my cousin, my friend, my pet;
Driving all morning and noon and afternoon;
Stopping at a lodge for relaxation, snacks, refreshments, games and tune.

In the evening we travel some more,
To reach at a hotel for sleep and shelter.
Early morning we get on the road again,
On our way, have to travel across a border.

Now we are out of the suburbs somehow,
Crossing every farm, cow, goat, land, meadow
And all other things to be found.
Finally reached our destination, safe and sound!

Oh so beautiful, the view is breathtaking,
Watching this, I need no more waking.
Everything is here, the sun and the mountains and the lake and the grass and rocks
and pebbles and trees and birds and squirrels and us!

Time for a lovely picnic at the best spot outside town!
